running a .exe file on the net

Hi
my mate wants to know, for his website, if you can actually run an exe file online, like, if you click on a link to it or something. Is it possible?
thanks

    You can always choose 'open' instead of 'save' (off course, it still gets downloaded and executed on the client machine)
    Or some (windows) servers offer *.exe cgi programs ... but not many

    The answer is yes. There are a number of ways to do this:

    1. Create the program as a Java Applet
    2. Run the program on the server (if you have an account)
    3. Click the link in a Windows browser and select "Run" instead of "Save"
